>I have some thoughts on touch running through my mind. I realize that sounds funny but here goes.
There are certain types of touch that are shared between strangers. There are certain types of touch that are shared between acquaintances. The same goes for friends, good friends, best friends, dating couples and lovers. These are touches that are socially accepted and known to all. Am I right?
For example, you are sitting down talking to a friend and someone of the opposite sex comes up behind you and gently strokes your hair a few times before lightly resting their hand on your head and keeping it there while smiling down at you. In my opinion, this touch is a little too personal for strangers, acquaintances and friends. Am I just too conservative or am I right?
A good friend did this to me today. It is not someone that I am attracted to and yet it was a very comforting touch. I responded by smiling back and continuing to talk to my friend.
I’m not sure why I felt the need to write this all in a blog and I am sure that it feels a bit incomplete because I haven’t come to any conclusion, but that is all I have to say. 🙂
